Saarathi- Easy, affordable, specialized Online Counselling
Our ability to retain our mental balance and find peace as we journey through life depends on various factors. These include our innate capacity to naturally adapt, environmental factors of our past and present, as well as our individual life experiences and learnings therefrom. Often things go off hand and we feel the need for a perspective and/or advise of a trusted, wise and caring friend. Saarathi’s goal is to be that friend. Saarathi aims to offer value to people seeking help to deal with emotional and mental health issues by offering professional counseling services online.
Counseling can help you deal with a range of challenges. They may be relatively simple ones such as finding or committing to a direction in your life, maximizing your potential, dealing with low mood etc. It can also help you manage your emotions or take decisions you are more likely to be happy with, as you deal with significant life events such as getting married, starting a family, leaving home or coping with the passing of a loved one.
Sometimes deep-seated mental health issues may emerge from the effects on our mind from past painful experiences, childhood issues, abuse, trauma, genetic factors, addiction, relationship issues or sustained stress. Counselling has proven to be a powerful tool to help you in any of these cases.
The submenus under the services section describe some of the most common conditions which benefit from counseling. However, for a more accurate assessment of your specific situation and advise for a treatment plan, you need to contact a counselor. Don’t be afraid to reach out whatever your concerns. Therapists deal with people facing a wide range of issues.
Saarathi works with people of all faiths, ethnicities, sexual orientations and approaches to life.
